Lesinurad (Zurampic)

Lesinurad (Zurampic) is used to treat patients with gout. In gout, high levels of uric acid cause excess urate crystals to deposit in the joint, creating a hot, swollen, painful joint; the primary manifestation of gout. Lesinurad decreases uric acid by increasing the amount excreted in the urine.
